St. Mary Rewards

Saint Mary School does not participate in fund-raising activities, but our families find many creative (and often painless) ways to provide additional financial support for our school.

Box Tops


Box Tops are worth .10 cents each. Clip and collect them from products you already use and send them in a sealed envelope or baggie with your child’s & teacher name via your child’s folder. The class that collects the most earns a jeans day or special treat.  Access the complete list of participating products in the Box Tops program. You can also help earn eboxtops by using the Box Top Marketplace® to shop at your favorite stores such as Lands’ End and Wal-Mart.

Paper Recycling

Saint Mary School is working to become a Michigan Green School! We participate in the Paper Retreiver program. Two green and yellow paper recycling dumpsters are located in the Main Campus parking lot on Market Street. Simply save your home or office waste papers and deliver them to our recycle bin. The Paper Retriever organization picks up the recycling and rewards our school with cash! It's a win-win situation for our families, the school, and our Earth's environment.

Pennies From Heaven

Pennies from Heaven is sponsored by the Parent Advisory Committee of Saint Mary School to fund special programs, activities, and gifts for the students. Each classroom (Preschool - 8th Grade) has a collection box which students and their families contribute to with spare change (and sometimes bills) throughout the school year. Each week, parent volunteers count the change to determine a running total for each classroom. Each grade level determines specific donation goals and rewards at the start of the school year. As individual classrooms receive their successive goals; the class celebrates with jean or pajama days, ice cream treats, movies, hat day, extra recess, etc. In addition to these mini-goals, the classes are also in competition with one another to raise the most money throughout the school year. The winning class wins an end-of-year pizza party.

The best part of the program is that all contributions directly benefit the students. Money raised through Pennies from Heaven help to fund many wonderful school assemblies.

Scrip Program


Scrip is a term that means "substitute money" for Saint Mary School tuition or Saint Peter Religious Education tuition.  You use Scrip to purchase everyday expenses like food, clothing, gas, and other essentials.  With every purchase, you earn money that is applied to your tuition balance.This is a voluntary program, designed to provide some tuition assistance for Saint Mary School tuition. You may ask family, friends or co-workers to purchase Scrip from you as well. Gift certificates make great gifts; think of them as "a gift that continues to give." We encourage everyone to participate in this program; even those who do not have a student at Saint Mary School. It is a win-win program. Any revenue generated from an order not directly linked to a student is applied to a Tuition Scholarship Fund for Saint Mary School or Saint Peter Religious Education.
